    Default Is yours an innie or an outie? :)

    I cannot keep Wilson inside. He just loves being outside. The weather is cool right now and very curious about everything right now - he's 3 months this Sat. He'll go out and just sit on the deck or go exploring in the yard (at which point I have to go hunt him down). I'm always keeping a close watch on him when he's out too, especially since he likes to go under the lowest part of our deck and considers it his personal playground. Lets just say I have to bribe him to come out - I use it as a training session for him to Come. I might have to lattice that section though since he's gets under there at 4:30 in the morning and I'm in my bathrobe (it's only 1.5' high in that section).

    Like just now, he disappeared (that's always a bad sign cause it means he's into something he shouldn't be, lol) and went out the doggie door in the laundry room and came back at the sliding door. He's little pill I tell ya. I'm curious to see how he does when the weather gets warm. We have very low humidity here so that's good and lots of cool areas in our yard.

    So, is yours an innie or an outie?

    Maggie is both ... she HATES the cold weather and in Ohio that is pretty much 6 months of the year. It really sucks .... I swear that if a bulldog could tiptoe over the snow on the deck to the grass, then she does it.

    In summer she will become the sun goddess, and unfortunately our deck can get over 100f ..... and with high humidity so I am constantly dragging her back inside from wherever she has chosen to sunbathe!!

    We didn't get Daddy until October so he had the fall to enjoy the yard, and whenever possible he is still out in the yard no matter how high the snow is. I'm assuming he is going to be the same in the summer and so I willl be dragging two bullies out of the yard!

    Winston and Layla love it outside. I have to bribe them to come in (unless it raining...of course)

    Karen, do you use a sunscreen for the white areas? I've never had a dog that had white with pink ears on the underside.

    Wilson seems to love the cold and snow. We had a 1/2" dusting of snow and he played in it and laid on his back and rolled.

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one who has to bribe. I thought the bribing might come a bit later though, lol.

    @JeannieCO ... unfortunately it's not just the heat it's the awful humidity we have. Maggie has a smaller trachea than even most bulldogs have so her breathing becomes so labored it's frightening!!!

    I don't know how hot it gets where you are, but you have to be SO careful with bulldogs in the sun. My gut feeling would be that if it's hot enough for you to consider sunscreen that you might want to really consider how much time Wilson spends outside.

    Thanks for that info. My boys have always been indoor dogs when we're not home and have been known to be pansies. Wilson will never be out too long when it's too hot. It average in the 90's here during the summer with an occassional 100. We camp a lot though and it's in the desert and it gets hot there. We always leave the boys in comfort of the A/C when it's too h to and we're out boating.

    Vegas and Orion HATE being outside.



    As you can see...I pulled out the cushions for a nice afternoon of outdoor reading. When I went inside to get my book, Vegas had taken up residence in my chair, so I pulled the cushions out for another one..which Orion claimed. They sat in the chair sunning themselved for about an hour. Although the sun was out..it was just over 60 degrees. I still had a sweatshirt on!
    They love to sun themselves. They also love to play in the snow. So I have 2 outies!

    @kazzy220 you know the extreme heat we get here in the UK NOT
    Sorry couldnt resist it
    But truthfully our summers are pants highs of 22 if we are lucky and its not raining advise re: bulldogs and the sun from my vet was avoid it!!...only to toilet, and to go for walks when the sun goes down. He warned to be careful even letting her in the shade because our yard is concrete and it soaks up the heat so she can get too hot without us even realising.
    Needless to say I have a paddling pool andsqeezy lemon at the ready for our possible warm days but it will probably sit lonely, sad and unused along side the barbecue because of the typical rainy UK summertime.

    As for innie or outie Lucy would live outside if I let her she is soo nosey, and the only way I can get her in when she's being her usual stubborn self is bribary
